Ladies, if you are looking for a new watch to indulge in, Jaquet Droz is adding a dash of sparkle to its existing Lady 8 collection with a stunning timepiece. The Lady 8 Shiny is part of the exquisite Lady 8 collection that was first introduced in 2013, but it’s often thought of as being the ultimate, largely because of its classic styling and intricate detailing. As far as the Lady 8 watches go, this is about as good as it gets.
Whether as decorative element or source of inspiration, the figure 8, Jaquet Droz’s lucky number has always been present on the dial of the Grande Seconde. A timeless icon, the figure 8 is an endless source of new inspiration for the Swiss watchmaker who has over the years with each new collection celebrated the magic of time in its most infinitesimal fractions.
Remaining perfectly faithful to the original Lady 8’s general architecture, this version is adorned with gemstones with grey gold and diamonds (1.49 carats). In order to give the Lady 8 Shiny more fluid lines, the lugs have given way to an alligator strap attached to the case which comes in gem-set white gold for a total of 4.92 carats. The new folding clasp, specially created for this model, also takes the shape of a figure of eight, is made of grey gold and diamonds (1.51 carats) reaffirming the striking identity of the Lady 8 on the inside of the wrist.
